French Market Purse Snatcher Caught on Film
On Wednesday, we had a purse snatching in the Quarter, imagine that. But this time, it was all caught on film. NOPD PIO's turned DP's and PA's have released some video. They were also considerate enough to offer the following backstory. (Video and backstory after the jump.)
There's lots of art down here, and a ton of it deals with Katrina. Let's just say some pieces are better than others, but everyone's heart is the right place. Then, there is Teddy Smith! This guy delivers! We stumbled upon this gem whereby Smith films the abandoned Six Flags. Aside from being real cool as all abandoned amusement parks are (Asbury Park made Bruce's career,) and having some great post-k moments (the sign still says, "Closed for Storm,"), the piece is artistically stunning.

The LA Times and Popmatters both love it! Watch tonight at 9 on PBS.
